it was. demographically in terms of all the different ethnic groups, in new york city i think there are 140 or 150 languages spoken in the schools. at the republican convention that waso pie and andy griffith and that was a wonderful thing on tv even though it wasn't real at the time either, and that -- i don't mean to -- it sounds condescending, i'm not trying to be that way. i wish life were simpler. >> the fear is legitimate. the fear is real. >> i wish my life were simpler. we love the '50s. >> i did too, but a lot of people had no reason to love the 50s. didn't get the civil rights bill through until the '60s. it seems like joe biden is a familiar figure 60 years ago. barack obama, of course, has an exotic name, an freezing rain name. he's not an unusual fellow. these aren't strange personalities. leon panetta is the most common, regular -- someone you would have met 100 years ago. is the democratic party that new age that they scare people. maybe i'm part of that reality. i don't see them as strange at all. >> it goes back to the propaganda factor. it's not just that rush and

down in new york city, msnbc political analyst karen finney. john, are you there in the spin room. as you know, the spinning begins before either candidate has spoken. we've seen both parties attempt to deflate expectations. but isn't the biggest challenge for mitt romney, not what he plans to say tonight, but how he explains what he's already said, in particular, his derision for 47% of the people in this country? >> reporter: certainly, martin, he's going to have to address that and try to diffuse that issue. look, this is an incredibly important event in the campaign. tens of millions of people will watch these two guys standing side by side. mitt romney is behind, but behind by three points. he could still win this race. he's got to figure out a way to both hurt obama, help himself, make credible arguments his economic plan will make the lives of 100% of americans better, and try to establish some connection with the american people he hasn't been able to do on far. it's a tall order. it's not impossible. >> well, thankfully, john, i'm near the department of theology here, so
